15 Design Ideas for Your Truck:
1. Keep It Simple
We’ll begin with simple solid-color vehicle wraps. Vehicle wraps can last seven or more years, being less expensive than a high-quality paint job. If you plan on wrapping multiple vehicles with the same wrap, it will be much less expensive than painting them all separately. Vehicle wraps, in addition to having a long lifespan, offer more color options, are easier to apply than paint, are simple to maintain and remove, and can be easily customized.
2. Choose Your Finish: Matte or Metallic?
A metallic or matte vehicle wrap can help your vehicle stand out if you want something a little more interesting than a plain color. These wraps can provide a classy and polished appearance. It can be costly to achieve these fancy finishes with paint, so consider using a vinyl wrap instead.
3. Fill the Frame
Filling the entire vehicle wrap with a single pattern or scenic background is another popular and eye-catching idea that still appears simple and not overly designed. For example, galaxy vehicle wraps have grown in popularity in recent years for purely aesthetic reasons. This is another popular advertising technique; imagine a background covered in images of your most popular product.
4. Get Creative
A vehicle wrap is essentially a blank canvas, why not express yourself? With limitless design possibilities , this kind of sign needs your creative juices in making the best design for your business and brand.
5. Create an Illusion
You will get noticed if you can create an optical illusion with your vehicle wrap. For example, a known zoo had collaborated with a design firm to create a design that appears to be a giant snake wrapped around the bus, slowly crushing it. It was a unique way for the zoo to gain a lot of attention on a small advertising budget.
6. Choose Your Vehicle Wisely
Get creative with the type of vehicle you design the wrap or graphics for if your business allows it. A professional vehicle wrapping service can custom fit the wrap to almost any shape and size car, truck, bus, van, or even trolley, so the sky’s the limit! Different vehicles can assist in conveying various messages. A learning institution, for example, may choose to wrap a school bus, whereas a landscaper would be better off adding graphics to a custom service truck.
7. Maximize Your Doors
Consider the placement of your vehicle’s doors and windows and how they will affect the design of the wrap. Examine whether you can use them creatively to your advantage. To create a unified look, you can cover them with vinyl wrapping.
8. Be Funny
Humor is a great way to amplify your advertising, so why not get a little funny with your vehicle wrap design? If you can make a passerby laugh during their morning commute, they’ll be sure to remember you. Take some inspiration from a popular van wrap idea used by plumbing companies: a vehicle wrap that makes the driver look like they’re sitting on a toilet. Sure, it might embarrass the driver, but it’s guaranteed to draw attention!
9. Be Colorful
Have you ever heard of the term “color psychology”? Color on vehicle wraps not only draws attention, but it can also elicit specific emotions. So, while you should use bright colors to catch people’s attention, you should consider your company’s brand personality and the emotions you want viewers to associate with you.
10. Call Out the Competitors
Some businesses take the prank a step further and poke fun at their competitors. You may have seen the viral FedEx truck wrap that made the trucks appear to be carrying two smaller UPS trucks. You probably wouldn’t do something so obvious, but you get the idea.
11. Incorporate Visuals
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so don’t underestimate the power of adding some graphics to your vehicle wrap. This is an especially popular design choice among food and beverage businesses. For example, the delivery truck wrap we designed for Edible Arrangements explains what the company does with one beautiful photo, rather than a bunch of text. It’s not only eye-catching but mouth-watering!
12. Don’t Forget the Text
As entertaining as these ideas are, don’t get so caught up in the design that you overlook the text, especially if you’re advertising with your vehicle wrap. You want the text to be simple, visible, and legible. You should avoid busy or difficult-to-read fonts and be strategic about text placement for maximum views. Text is commonly placed on the back and sides of a vehicle.
13. Branding Is Key
Vehicle wrap advertising should be consistent with your company’s brand. To increase brand awareness, your logo should be visible from all sides, and the colors used in the wrap should be complementary. You don’t want someone to see your wrap and not think of your company!
14. Do Good
What do you want people to remember your company for? A great vehicle graphic can help your company project a positive public image.
15. Invite Viewers to Engage
Perhaps the primary goal of your vehicle wrap is to catch viewers’ interest and direct them to learn more about your company. If so, including links to your company’s website and/or social media accounts on your vehicle wrap is a simple yet effective way to accomplish this.
